As the days dwindle down on 2022, now’s the time to squeeze in medical care before your deductible resets on Sunday, January 1.

While you’re scheduling last-minute physicals, vision and dental appointments, don’t forget about your feet. This unsung body part might spend most of the time tucked away in shoes or boots, but since the average person will walk 100,000 miles in a lifetime, feet deserve some attention.

Falling behind the common cold and tooth decay, feet conditions are the third most common ailment Americans suffer from.

Dr. Danielle Shaper, founder of Finesse Footcare in Lyndhurst, has earned a reputation for exploring emerging technologies to treat foot and ankle conditions in a conservative and minimally invasive manner.

“When it comes to foot pain, I feel that it should never be ignored, and no one should have to needlessly suffer,” she says. “I can almost always improve any foot condition through treatment. Foot pain can also trigger pain elsewhere, such as the knees, hips, back and even the neck.”

Dr. Shaper treats every condition of the foot and ankle, whether you suffer from ingrown toenails, heel pain, bunions, warts, corns, toenail fungus, plantar fasciitis, bunions, Achille’s tendonitis, a wound or sprain, heel spurs, flat feet, or hammertoe. She’s also passionate about addressing diabetic foot care needs and offers pediatric foot care and care for sports injuries.

Diagnostics, including digital X-rays and gait analysis, are covered by insurance.

All types of durable medical equipment are also covered. This ranges from tapings to night splints, boots, ankle braces and custom orthotics.

“Any patient at any age or stage in life can see benefits from wearing orthotics shoe inserts,” says Dr. Shaper, who wears them herself. “They fit any footwear, from athletic shoes to business casual shoes, dress shoes, even ski boots and skates.”

Finesse Footcare is located at 5035 Mayfield Road, Suite 202, in Lyndhurst. Financing options are available. The helpful ladies in the office can get you on the schedule to maximize your care before the deductible goes back to $0 on January 1, 2023. Call 216-382-8070 or visit for more information.
